Similar experience here. The first time I heard about GNUstep was in
the CHiP magazine about '94 IIRC. It was an article about Objective-C in
general (3 pages), and a small box about libfoundation. They also
mentioned GNUstep there.

I was really surprised to meet a guy last weekend who was working at Apple
for quite some time, but left Apple 2 years ago. He was working on the
Rhapsody OS and  API extensions (or course in Objective-C). He didn't know
AT ALL that there is an OpenSource project (=GNUstep) that tries to implement
the OpenStep API. He was very interested!
